Challenge: 5 Things to say to Managers

Imagine: You're an HR Professional and you will die soon. What are the 5 things you would say to the managers in your company?

Remember, you're dying. You have nothing to loose. And if you believe in Karma, lets assume for the sake of this challenge that your comments don't count against your Karma score. So you can say whatever you want.

What would you say?

Here is some background information. I challenge every HR Blogger to write about their "5 Things" and send me the link to their post.

I took up this challenge on "Five things I must tell you before I go" at http://www.collaborationzone.com/blog I wasn't as clever as Wally, but I gave it my best shot. Thanks for the invitation.

I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who contributed to this challenge.

As the new kid on the block in HR blogging I hoped for 2-3 replies from a few trolls but instead got contributions from great people who obviously gave this a lot of thought!

And the great news is: we're not done yet. Today, the AwesomeRedHrHead (or was it AwesomeHrRedHead...) announced that she would soon send me her list.

Life is good in HR Land!
